#Technology: #BMW #3D prints new thumbs for factory workers

I wasn’t going to reblog this as I thought it’s not really about sustainability or equality!

But then as Occupational Therapist … Wow amazing the possibilities are endless. This 3d printing is mind boggling. The ability to strengthen limb in this way could benefit so many life’s of people who suffer from weekend limbs from conditions such as Parkinson’s, or even the elderly who have had falls and damages limbs. Making it an equality issue, as it would help people to be able to function in a more normal environment, limiting the need for aids and in turn boosting their confidence.

As you can see I am a touch over excited about this, but wowzers! Ahh the possibilities, incredible !
